"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," from new york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get -- that's my mandate. >> the president draws a line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage? >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an excl
to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in the open and on the table. you know what, think about this. the president could have said, you know, i don't want to do that. i
to ed show. thanks for staying with us tonight. president obama wasn't the only one speaking out today. the mr. mitt romney held a conference call with his high-dollar donors. romney seemed to double down on his 47% comments. romney said the president won by following the old playbook and giving gifts to, quote, the african-american community, the hispanic community, and young people. the former candidate went on to say this. "with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. and then finally, obama care also made a difference for them because, as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parent's plan, and that was a big gift too to young people." for more, let's turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." it doesn't sound like mitt romney has learned anything in the last week. >> the interesting thing is that back in october, when he was really getting a hard time
and sari. thanks for ruining my theory. >>> president obama toured some of the hardest hit parts of the new york area as recover continues after hurricane sandy. there's chuck schumer right behind him. this is "hardball," the place for politics. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger. >>> mitt romney failed to carry his home state of massachusetts in the romney/ryan ticket didn't win ryan's home state of wisconsin either. 20 presidential tickets in american history have lost both their home states, although romney and ryan are the first to reach that level of futility since 1972 when george mcgovern and sargent shriver didn't carry either of their home states, south dakot
more. thank you, i appreciate it. >> thank you. just a short time ago president obama arrived in new york. he is expected to meet with family officials and first responders, all still trying to recover from hurricane sandy. the storm left millions without powers. some of the hardest hit areas on new york's long island. the congressman joins me now. congressman, it's good to have you with me this morning. let's ask about your area, neighbors there. how are they doing recovering from sandy and in your estimation has the federal government done enough to help in the last few weeks? >> well, this recovery will be long, it will be slow and difficult. it has been the way since the storm struck the last two weeks ago. we have small businesses trying to recover that lost business, our economy took a hit. and so we have to make sure that long island is getting all the resources it needs to get back up on its feet, to keep the power on, to build the instruct, to get people in their homes to take care of the devastation that was inflicted on long island as a result of the storm. that's importan
are blamed for 32 deaths in 19 states. now back to "on the record" with gret a. thanks for watching fox. " >> greta: obamacare is now the law of the land. like it or not works we have it. a slight wrinkle. did the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law
are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the presidential press conference, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. mostly a waste of time. as mr. obama did what he always does, provided long-winded answers to general questions. the first question from the white house press corps should have been very simple. exactly when were you told about general petraeus, mr. president? and why was this kept secret until after the election? simple. that's the kind of question that allows no wiggle room. instead, an associated press guy asked an opinion question rather than a fact question. allowing the president to dance. >> do you think that you, as commander and chief, and the american people should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and, you know, i'm going to let director muller and others e
to look at the damage and to thank first responders who risked their lives last month. later this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "lincoln" for a screening at the white house. he is coming off a very important news conference yesterday. not only was this the first since his re-election, it was also the first he's held in eight months. several reporters did want to talk about the general petraeus scandal, of course but the president fortunately did get to spend a lot of time on the fiscal cliff which is what he was hoping for. while left room for a compromise by not taking a hard, red line on taxes he did say that he will not extend cuts for the rich. >> obama: when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> senate democrats are hoping he will stick to that claim and not compromise. with republicans they're asking the president not to cave in on talks over the fiscal clif
